First cheese smoke today with Q-View

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Well today I finally gave it a shot, I wont know exactly what I got until about three weeks from now, but it sure looked and smelled good!


The starting lineup...7.75 lbs total.






I cut each block into thirds...




This is one of  the hangers I made for my smoker for summer sausage and the like, these worked really well for cheese too!




Into the smoker! (thanks for the stockinette idea Pops6927 thumb.gif)




No problem keeping the smoker temp down today!




After 3.5 hours @ 80 degrees with Mulberry and Shag-bark hickory smoke...




Out of the stockinettes and ready to vac pack...




vacuum packed (ends are double sealed) and ready to take a nap in the fridge for about three weeks...

Looks-Great.gif you are going to love that smoked cheese. yours also took on some nice color.  I have only smoked with mulberry a few times, I don't know why I just haven't,  I have a several mulberry trees around the house and yard so it's not like I don't have excess to it. th_dunno-1[1].gif

Boy your cheese looks great, really nice color! I have to try the mesh bags one time, they really look like the way to smoke cheese.

How is the mulberry?  I now have some pellets that I bought and have the opportunity to buy some more as wood chips.  I usually use Hickory shag bark chips, but have others also.  Is it a strong flavor like hickory, or milder like alder?   Smoked cheese ROCKS!!!!

Mulberry is very mild, very similar to apple. This cheese has now aged about 5-6 weeks and is really getting into its prime...Good stuff!!
